Default ice

Something you should consider. If the ice sets to long it grts old and tastes bad that is the reason they let you get for free. Keeps fresh ice in the bin. Dont worry there will always be enough ice. Not sure but I think those are 400 pound machines.

Hi DDoug,

As I see it, the purpose of ice at the rec centers is for use at the rec. centers. There are fitness classes, dance classes, arts and crafts, card games, pool games, club activities, neighborhood parties and other special events going on throughout the day and evening at these centers.

If everyone who lived in TV felt free to go get free ice from the rec centers whenever they needed ice, there would not always be enough ice.

And what if there is left over ice sometimes? Just because we assume that someone else has more than they need does not give us a right to take it! If it did, then we couldn't complain if anyone came into our homes and took whatever they assumed we didn't need!

PT I guess that means I won't be planting new flowers around the house this year cause as soon as I heard about the free ice I naturally assumed you were welcome to take the flowers home that somebody plants for you along the roadside roundabouts.

A checker at Publix in Colony told me the same thing two years ago. I decided that she was a Villages- wanna- be who was forced to live someplace else.

My husband works at Bacall Rec Center, and people bring their coolers in all the time to fill with ice. It's only a problem when folks bring in HUGE coolers on a day that there is a big event scheduled at the rec center. Then he politely asks them to go instead to Canal St. or another close center so he can reserve Bacalls ice for the event.

I do not think it is right to fill a cooler with ice at any of the rec centers.

I agree.

AND I just read your TOTV name more carefully. I thought that you were Paula and Jean. (I speed read) I see that you are Paul and Jean. Just thought you were two girls for a long time, see that you are a boy and a girl.

Now I have to revise the visual in my mind. Let me see, Paul has dark curly hair and Jean is blonde. I imagined you were both redheads.

Gracie. Who wastes time on here. (Avoiding packing to go north)
